Learn what it takes to be an effective professional teacher with SCHOOL: AN INTRODUCTION TO EDUCATION, 2ND EDITION. Based on the ten standards developed by the INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium), teachers are expected to be reflective, knowledgeable, highly skilled, and creative professionals who are lifelong learners. With this book, authors Edward Ebert and Richard Culyer have developed a compelling and timely approach that gives you a thorough overview of what it means to be a successful teacher. Through first-person accounts and helpful strategies from prominent educators and in-service teachers, you'll gain insight into the realities of being a teacher in today's rapidly changing society. The result is a book that will empower you as a pre-professional and, ultimately, as an instructional leader.
